Deer are available wild and free on a huge working cattle ranch in Queensland
and in a Game Ranch in South Australia.
best time to hunt Axis Deer is from February until June, however they
can be hunted all year round.

should be cotton camouflage or similar, with a warm jacket for early
morning and late evening hunts. Boots should be lightweight, vibram
soled walking boots as the terrain is mostly rolling hills with eucalyptus
forest and open grazing areas. Great for spot and stalk hunting. You
will require good quality binoculars on all of our hunts.
As Axis are hunted over widely separated areas and conditions across
Australia, the weather conditions vary considerably.
The weather in each of the hunting areas during the hunting season is
generally warm sunny days with cool to cold nights.
In Queensland, where the Axis are wild and free, the accommodation is
in the farmers homestead with his family.
In South Australia accomodation and meals are at a modern nearby motel.
Comfortable facilities are provided in each hunt location.
